After obtaining his B. Sc. In Chemical Engineering from the University of Jordan in 1984 AlNashef worked as teaching and research assistant at Kuwait University and United Arab Emirates University where he participated actively in different research areas. Dr. AlNashef joined King Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, after obtaining his Ph. D. from the University of South Carolina in 2004. In 2011, Dr. AlNashef was promoted to associate professor. AlNashef was very active in research related to green engineering and sustainability and established collaboration with University of Malaya, KL, Malaysia, where he was a co- advisor for six Ph. D. students. Dr. AlNashef moved to Abu Dhabi (UAE) where he is now employed as an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Khalifa University, Masdar City Campus.

Dr. AlNashef co-authored more than 100 peer-reviewed journal publications. In addition, he received 8 patents from US and EU Patent Offices. He is also a recipient of several prestigious awards including King Abdullah Award for best invention in 2013. He supervised about 12 graduate students.
